  • Ultrasonic teeth scaling and polishing

    Accumulation of plaque on teeth is a serious health problem, both in dogs and cats. Accumulated tartar slowly pushes the gums away from the teeth, leaving the tooth roots exposed. Pockets form between the teeth and gums, the gums become inflamed and eventually the teeth fall out. Dental plaque if full of bacteria which is a permanent source of the infection for the animal. Small breeds of dog and Persian cats are especially prone to tartar accumulation. Apart from the health problem for the pet, tartar accumulation is also very unpleasant for the pet owner because of the very bad smell from the animalís mouth. Once it has accumulated, plaque can only be removed by a trained veterinary surgeon. It should be removed by ultrasonic scaling since removing the plaque manually can seriously damage the enamel of the teeth. It is also important to polish teeth after the scaling as this slows down accumulation of new plaque.

  • Prosthetic and orthodontic treatments

    As humans, pets can have problems with irregular teeth location and irregular bite. Those teeth can be damaged or broken more easily. Sometimes problems with jaws and teeth can be so serious to unable animal to eat normally. In those cases it's important to correct those abnormalities by prosthetic or orthodontic treatment.

  • Tooth extractions

    Teeth affected by an injury or a disease can cause pain and discomfort to an animal. So it is important to help our patients quickly and painlessly. An additional problem in veterinary medicine is that our patients cannot tell us that they are in pain or where the pain is. They may however give us clues with their behaviour, For example an animal may drool, lick its lips, chew noisily or refuse to eat. As the disease progress swellings, even abscesses can appear. By x-ray examination we can localize the source of the problem and then we can extract the affected tooth if necessary. It is important that teeth are extracted professionally because animal's teeth have long and irregular roots compared to humans. These roots can break easily during extraction and if they are not removed the original problem will persist and may even become worse as abscesses and infection in the jaw bone can develop.
